Our Little Peanut- 1 year Appointment

Today was Mase's 1 year appointment. He is 31.5 inches tall which puts him in the 90th percentile for heaight, and he weighs 21lbs. 7.5 oz. which puts him in the 25th percentile for weight. His head is 18.5 inches which is in the 75th percentile. Jack was always in the 90+ percentiles for weight, so it makes Mase feel like a little peanut. He had to get 3 immunizations and handled them great.

Mase is getting really close to walking on his own, and with his Birthday party on the 9th I know all of you family members are hoping you get to be around for his first few steps! It's looking like there's a good chance that could happen!

It's a good thing we decided not to celebrate on his actual birthday too because he spent that whole day throwing up. We were going to take him to the pool, but he ended up sleeping and snuggling all day. Luckily he snapped out of it by the next day. 3 days after his Birthday Britt and Brian came over to celebrate and Mase was not a fan of his cupcake... I think that it had something to do with the sprinkles. Hopefully he likes the one at his party better!

Snow Mountain Ranch 2011

Last weekend we spent the weekend as a family at the YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch near Granby, CO. It was a WONDERFUL weekend.

Jack got to craft and painted me a flowerpot
He sledded
Spent 45 minutes watching a tow truck hook up to a bus, and for the rest of the weekend asked if we could hook our car up to a tow truck, lucky for us that did not happen.
Played in the gym
Cross Country Skiied (while the boys were in the awesome childcare center)
Enjoyed the Beauty of the camp and mountains
Visited our favorite place in Colorado (Grand Lake) and saw a moose on the way
Enjoyed ice cream, well Jack and I enjoyed it, Mase doesn't like how cold it is and cringes with every bite!
Although we weren't sure if the boys would be old enough to enjoy camp, it turned out great. The boys were able to nap, sleep through the night, and still have a great time. Matt and I had an outstanding time and Snow Mountain Ranch will definitely be a place we go back to many times.

Happy Birthday Mason Curtis!

My little Masey turns one today. It actually makes me a little sad to know that my little baby is gowing up. There are so many things to love about Mason:

-He is an outstanding sleeper... he sleeps from 7:30PM-7:30AM every night, plus a nap from 9:30-11:30 and another nap from 1:30-3ish!!! Thats about 15 hours a day!
-He has the most adorable little smile, and knows just the moment when to flash it.
-He is a great eater, and will eat just about anything and love it (except he HATES strawberries)
-He loves his big brother SO much, and wants to be with him all the time.
-He always lays his head on my shoulder for a minute or two before I lay him down.
-He is outgoing and happy with anyone... the ladies in the nursery always say he is the best baby in there! (but I'm going to have to watch out because he is quite the little charmer!)
-He is smart and sneaky... he knows just how to steal his brother's toys or anyone's food.
-He LOVES to play "so big" and "peek-a-boo".
-He's a tough cookie (with a big bro like Jack he has to be, yesterday he got hit on the forehead by a airborne matchbox car and only cried for a second)
-He looks just like his daddy, and has the same expressions too (which makes me love Matt even more!)
-He loves the tub, even when his bro steals all the bubbles and toys!
-He loves puppies and has no fear when it comes to petting them.
-He has completed our family of four and brings joy to us every day!

Here are Mason's 1 year pictures!

The last week of our lives was glorious. All 4 of us, with no work, plenty of sleep, and lots of quality time together. We relaxed so much that even our to do list didn't get done. Along with the to-do list, I also didn't blog. Sorry. A few things we did do though were:

Typically, every March we go to Florida to spend a week with my parents. This year though we decided to still take our week of time off from work, but to enjoy life here in Denver. Matt and I are both so excited to just spend a week hanging out with each other and the boys.

Here are a few of the goals for the week:
-Get full nights of sleep (a rareity for us both)
-Scrapbook a lot
-Declutter (laundry room, linen closet, & garage)
-Go to the APEX center swimming with the boys
-Enjoy a "5280 date night" (courtesy of our babysitting swap)
-Go skiing in Breckenridge for a day
-Sew two superhero costumes (for a "superhero" party the boys are going to on Saturday)
-Sew Mase's birthday outfit and get his 1 year photos taken!
-Plan Mase's birthday party
-Complete a few projects around the house (paint doors and replace hardware, caulk down countertops, hang bedroom ceiling fan)
-Take the boys to the Cherry Creek Mall Play Area
-Get together with a few friends.

The possibilities are limitless!!! I'm sure you'll be able to follow us on our blog as we document our "staycation 2011"!

I'm In LOVE!

Lately I have been working some long hours. Some days I feel like I barely get a minute with my two little loves. Today though, I got to work at a store 5 minutes from home, which meant no rush hour traffic, no distractions to keep me at work late, and best of all... more time to hang out with my loves. And who wouldn't love more time to snuggle with these cuties???

Visit from Andrea and James

Last week Matt's cousin Andrea and her boyfriend James came out to Denver for a long weekend. It was our first time meeting James and we gave him our nod of approval (although I don't know if that mattered much!)

We spent the weekend exploring Denver, Fort Collins, and numerous breweries.

When they left Jack had a tough time saying goodbye, as he sobbed hugging Andrea goodbye.
